    After 10 years on Linux with no discernible virus, trojan or malware I thought I’d give the above a trial run. Hoping for another decade of confidence in my Linux systems.

      I will run all of these on a regular basis to ensure no intrusions.

      Cynical note: When windows finally dies, the security industry may turn their attention to Linux and macOS. Infections will follow and the industry will magically have solutions for us to purchase.

      Positive note: Windows won’t die, infecting systems will become a toy of the past.

    Trying to get my Lexmark 2600 series printer to run. I downloaded lexmark 2600 server software: lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh (not sure about sh). This installation requires root (administration) privileges in order to continue. I am sole user but don’t believe I got root privileges. Hope you can advise, thanks

    Do you install one in particular over others or install them all?
